|sample page from Rolling Thunder!|
We are developing new products all the time. Right now I am close to finishing and publishing the Mad for War fleet rules which are called Rolling Thunder! The system uses multi-based ships on a 1:1 basis utilizing smaller scale models to facilitate the painting and use of entire fleets in the Anglo-Dutch War period. This can mean upward of 100 ships per side.
I am getting more and more excited about amassing Muslim armies and these examples of what can be done with Warfare Miniatures Ottomans and Tatars are working out exactly the way I anticipated.
The number of horse and arm variants offer enormous scope for creating totally unique units. I am swithering about using the Ottomans to build a Safavid army too (although we may need a few variants for...
Small can be beautiful. I wanted to quickly produce a quantity of utilitarian vessels which I could use for brown water (coastal and river estuary) engagements in Europe and the far flung colonies between 1580 and 1720. Many ship designs are pretty elastic in terms of the span of time over which they can be used and as a start, I chose the Eighty Years War as a theme with an eye on the Anglo Dutch...
Finally I have managed to paint enough of the sipahis to put them in the shop in the condition they are meant to be seen. There are 15 different figures. 6 have split waists, 6 have sockets for arm variants, there are 12 arms with swords, pistols, maces and open hands. There are bow cases, scabbards empty and filled plus long arms to hang on the saddle side.
There are 7 different horses providing...
|Some new and unique pieces which I will be selling off.|
I tinker with stuff. It's an illness and I have had for years. I can't just leave things alone. I have to be chopping up figures, converting them and generally mucking about. Having been fixated with river crossings in Ireland (it all started with the Boyne you see) for quite some time, I have accrued a lot of what was once described by a...
|Kronan heels over in a gust of wind - WiP shot - not yet finished|
I am working on various projects right now including several in 28mm but none of those are quite ready for sharing. This little flight of fancy however, is.
The Battle of Öland which occurred on June 1st1676 during the Skåne War was a major fleet engagement and a disastrous defeat for Sweden. In terms of drama on the high seas, it...
More lovely work from Gareth's growing collection. It will be a real joy to see this collection on a table at a show somewhere when we finally settle down to normal once more.
Gareth's lovely warm painting style is set off by great basing and of course, Clarence's wonderful flags.
What better unit to show case the work than the Gard te Voet.
Thanks Alexey for sending these fine images of GNW Swedes. I am happy to say I now have several customers in Russia and GNW is proving of course, pretty popular.
I am even more curious abut the other period which seems to be popular with my Russian customers.... King William's War in Ireland!
A mixture of Warfare and I think, Ebor? miniatures.

|The return of Piet van der Valk ...as a brigadier|
Today is a bit of a consolidation with a commander vignette thrown in. I have other squadrons of Ottoman cavalry on the stocks right now and some riders finished but they are not based yet.
I have been discussing with designers what Ottoman artillery we need. On the short list so far are
a light gun, a field gun, a battering gun and a super heavy gun together with a mortar.
I am considering a...
I have always preferred to base irregular cavalry, particularly horse archers, on hexagonal bases. I started doing this way back around 1996 or 1997 when collecting large numbers of Huns. An American visitor to Claymore around about the turn of the century made me an offer I couldn't refuse and all of my Huns literally, went west.
Since then I have reprised the basing style for irregular infantry,...
